Snow Job

I usually like to end the week on a light note. How about as light as a snowflake? Here's the question: How many Snow men will it take to get this administration out of the deep freeze?

With approval numbers hovering in the low 30s obviously John W. Snow, Treasury Secretary, isn't cutting it. But then it's rumored he is on his way out if only someone else would take the job. Maybe he's too far beneath the radar to be of much help.

Put someone out front. Yep. Longtime Bush critic but more often defender, Tony Snow. Perfect name for a press secretary in this administration don't you think? Snow. After all, he comes from the "Fair and Balanced" Fox News network whose most popular pundits include Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. Fair and balanced to be sure as long as you grovel at their feet and take every syllable they utter as gospel.

It is reported that Mr. Snow has called the President "something of an embarrassment", and a man who has "a habit of singing from the political correctness hymnal".

Bush tell us "...I asked him about those comments, and he said, 'You should have heard what I said about the other guy.' "

Wow. What an interview strategy. Insult your potential boss and skate through because you said worse about his opponent. It will be interesting to see how he handles the adventures of Rice and Rummy - and the Administration's beat.

No, no, no - that's a SAND storm; not a SNOW storm.
